Frequently asked questions about RockboxUtility (FAQ)
As stated on RockboxUtility, this is the automated installer tool for Rockbox. See that page for more details.
Installation of the bootloader requires permissions for direct disk access. Check your user permissions.
Installation of the main build as well as updating (using the "Installation" tab) doesn't requires those permissions and can be done as normal user.
Make sure the Sansa is in MSC mode. You can't install Rockbox if the Sansa is in MTP mode. See also SansaFAQ#My_c200_doesn_t_have_an_MSC_Mode
If you haven't installed Rockbox before you need permissions for direct disk access (see "No Ipod found" / "No Sansa found" question) to detect the player. After you installed Rockbox once this is no longer needed.
Make sure you don't have Itunes running. Bootloader installation is only possible if Itunes isn't running. On Windows, check the task manager for remaining processes. On Mac, make sure Itunes is really closed and and not only minimized.
The HTTP error 404 means "file not found". This usually means that the download server has some issues. As downloads are provided by several mirrors this can affect only one of those. Retry a few minutes later.
How can I install my own build using RockboxUtility?
You can't, and we're not planning to support doing so.
